Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is normally pain-free, you may not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- persistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous aspects that enhance the risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies indicate that extreme periodontal disease might be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care in your home is vital to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
